According to a public information officer for Inyo County Sheriff’s Office, the post office in Shoshone at 113 N. California Highway 127 and at 101 Old Spanish Trail Highway in Tecopa were both burglarized on Nov. 3.

An Inyo County Sheriff’s deputy, assigned to the Tecopa-Shoshone area, “noticed obvious signs of a burglary to the post office in Shoshone” at around 8 a.m. on Nov. 3, according to Carma Roper, public information officer for the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office.
